Title: Open-source Software in Applied Geosciences
Room: Stolz 2

Filippo Broggini (ETH Zürich)
Sergey Fomel (University of Texas)
Thomas Günther (LIAG)
Russell Hewett (Total)

Workshop description

Open-source software (OSS) has become increasingly important to the advancement of the field of applied geoscience.  In this workshop, we explore the role of OSS in geosciences and seek to better understand the usage and development of open source software for geoscience research in industry and academia. We will review the progress in the development and adoption of OSS which has occurred since the first EAGE workshop on this subject in Vienna in 2006.
